Hello everyone. We hope you had a good weekend, despite the wind and rain! Hopefully, now that Lockdown is easing a little, you have managed to see a few more people – from a safe distance, of course. I find it really hard not to hug friends and family that I haven’t seen for a while, but so far I’ve managed to keep that 2 metre distance. How are you getting on? We miss you all and look forwards to the time that we will see you again.

Maths: How did you get on with Friday’s challenge? Solutions here.

Today’s Y3 video learning from Mrs Rowley.

Continuing from last week,  Y4 have a final lesson on the 12x table from Mrs Alloway. (Scholes did this lesson last Thursday!)

Reading: Today we are thinking about prediction. Video learning and activity sheet.

Spellings: We are practising the spelling for the sh sound this week. Spelling strategies sheet.

Morning!
Our home-learning posts are continuing but staff are in school full-time now, so the amount of teacher videos will be less.

Maths

Watch the video about addition being commutative (it can be done in any order) : https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cY11XvCcaH

Tell the story of each picture and write as many equal calculations as you can about the picture.

Eg 2+3+4 = 3+2+4 or 4+3+2 = 3+4+2

Reading

Watch the video about a story called The Colour Monster : https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cY11X8CcAT

Happy Friday! Another week done. Enjoy the weekend.

Maths

Have a go at the Friday challenges from White Rose Maths. There are more problems to solve here if you want : https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/classroom-resources/problems/

Reading – phonics

Read the postcard to June. It contains lots of split digraphs, which children often find tricky to read at first. See how many you can spot. If you can print it, you could put sound buttons on the words (the first one has been done to you) or you could write a list of all the words containing split digraphs.

Topic – science

Read the mixed up instructions and match them to the correct picture. (You could just match the number and letter if it can’t be printed.)

Good morning – happy Friday.

Reading: 

Here are the answers to yesterday’s learning.

Book club:
In class, we’d usually have a Love of Reading session each week where we read something that we love. Adults use the time to read with children.
Today, I’d like you to…

  • Get really comfy: wear some thick socks, a dressing gown or wooly jumper. Sit somewhere soft and relaxing.
  • Turn all electronic devices off: TVs, radios, computers, phones, tablets, etc.
  • Spend some quality time reading with each other. Read aloud, take it in turns, put on voices for characters, re-read things to improve how you’re reading them.
  • Talk about what you’re reading. Which are the best bits? Why? Does it remind you of other things you’ve read or watched? Do you know anything about parts of it from other knowledge that you have? What do you think of the characters? What will happen next? Why do you think that?

 

Maths:

Today is challenge Friday! Have a look at this video where I explain your problem. Here is the sheet if you wish to print it – Mrs Welsby and I worked it out on paper so don’t worry if you can’t.

 

Spanish:

Today, have a go at learning some Spanish on the Oak Academy website. In this lesson, we are going to learn about where Spanish is spoken in the world and we are going to learn the Spanish alphabet as well as numbers 1-10 with Miss Harrison. You will need some paper and a pen or pencil for this lesson.

Hi everyone. Isn’t it  a shame that we’ve lost the lovely sunshine! Although it does mean I don’t have to water my plants. I’ve grown a few things from seed and am looking forward to eating homegrown tomatoes and courgettes. Has anyone else been growing anything? I love the fact we are looking at plants in science this half term.
